War dividend for fish

What's the best way to save fish? Start a war.

Cod and haddock boomed in the North Sea while people were busy bombing and booming each other and not fishing.

It's not a big surprise really, if we don't catch fish then they can grow up and accumulate in the ocean. Sort of like an MPA--an ocean refuge for fish.

Of course, it hasn't escaped my attention that wars have some harmful consequences, but that's another subject altogether. We're just talking fish here.
